The patch is up, so stop complaining.

1up reports that the Banjo Kazooie:  Nuts & Bolts patch is up, fixing the tiny text for SD-TV owners. So, if you haven't bought Banjo yet worrying about not being able to read the objectives and such, no you have no excuses not to. It is an awesome game.

Now this is more like it. If only every developer would include this from the start...

Yeah the patch is up, I got it last night. However, the words are slightly too big now. Instead of an entire sentence being displayed within the box, because of how big the font is the sentence overflows, only part of the sentences can be displayed at once meaning the text will have to scroll up. This wouldn't be a problem, except that it takes way too long for the text to scroll, and there's no button (that i've found) to scroll manually. Also, once it scrolls, only one or two words are revealed.

It's still better than how it was before, so +1 to Rare for fixing it, but it seems like they spent too little time fixing the problem.

Regardless of all of this, IT'S A GREAT GAME. I played for hours even before they released the patch, and I'm still playing it.

Well, I wasn't really commenting on any grammar problems, I just was saying how you said the patch wasn't perfect. 
But, yeah, I saw a few things. Don't worry, it happens all the time lol.

Excellent. They solved that issue pretty quickly.

Good to know when I get my copy on Christmas I'll be able to play without an issue. Thanks for the update.

And so the magic of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts will be spread to all with abandon.

Enjoy it, SD people. It's amazing.

Yay i can actually read it now. It's kind of a little late for me though i allready beat it.

It doesn't change the fact that it's a bad game.

Man, the big text looks like balls. Good thing you can change it back to the good text.

Alright then, now if only I had my 360 back.

I doubt this was *the* reason that people wouldn't buy it for. This was something that should have been in the original game, but isn't *the* reason people don't want it, perhaps instead it doesn't interest them? This surely doesn't convince me to buy it (even for $40), and I have a HDTV. However, good for the SDTV users that play the game.

Don't be so sure. A friend of mine, huge Banjo-Kazooie fan, has the game but will not play it because he can't read the text.

The text shows up and vanishes before you can read everything it says anyways so what's the point whether you can read it or not?  Now maybe if they changed it so you can hit the A button after you've read what is there then maybe.  That's the one thing I don't like about this game.

read faster. but yes, it would be nice to have such a button.

There's just not enough time to read that quickly AND watch what's going on with the characters in the scene.

Can you? I didn't see an option for it and was worried that they fixed the game for SDTV owners, and broke the game for HDTV owners who now have to stare at huge-ass text.

I agree with elko84, too. Not everyone reads at the same speed or splits their attention between the cutscenes and text the same way. I'm glad I can now easily read the dialog, but kind of irritated that I have to sit there and wait for it to scroll.
